As Iran steps up enrichment, it steps away from the nuclear deal...what's next depends on US and EU nuclear diplomacy

Pushing back against US sanctions and European inaction on trade, Iran is stepping up its uranium enrichment. How far will Tehran go to apply pressure on the West, and how will the Europeans respond? The 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, or Iran Deal) set a uranium enrichment cap of 3.67 percent. Tehran sailed past the cap on Monday, with a spokesman for the country's nuclear agency announcing it had reached 4.5 percent, and would consider upping enrichment to 20 percent. The International Atomic Energy Agency's inspectors confirmed the news later on Monday. In addition, the Islamic Republic broke its 300kg low-enriched uranium stockpile limit less than a week ago. While easily reversed, Iran maintains that these steps are "remedial," and permitted by the 2015 agreement. Tehran wants the European parties to the deal to honor their trade commitments with Iran and deal in Iranian oil - a violation of American sanctions. What can Iran do with 20 percent enriched uranium?...
